With our long history of creating meticulously crafted stationery, invitations and bespoke packaging, it makes absolute sense for Downey to apply our extensive skills and knowledge into producing luxurious and beautiful corporate brochures and books. This highly specialist area is a great opportunity to realise and promote the true power of print along with clever and intricate design and finely tuned hand-applied crafts.
With our in-house design department, not only are we able to create the artwork but often we can partner with a client’s own lead brochure designers, outside book designers or creative agency to produce the finished book or brochure. Often, our clients find it is of great benefit that the sooner we are involved in the project, the sooner we are able to offer our guidance into print production and hand finishes for the completed piece.
With our access to many of the fine and luxurious materials used for coverings and brochure pages along with our excellent product knowledge when ordering the materials, we can provide a wide resource selection. Not only this, but with our experience with print production and a varied process base, we can give accurate guidance on how some materials react with certain specialist processes.
We have plenty of experience utilising the various methods of book binding. From case binding to section sewing, thermal binding or saddle-stitching, our team can provide clear and precise advice on the best methods to implement for your brochure or book. No challenge is to great and we would love to hear your ideas and vision for the project, if you tell us what your dream is, we can tell you how to produce it.
Another great area we can assist you with is by producing a luxury slip case for that final, special finishing touch and detail for your book project. We are very experienced in creating bespoke packaging so we can very easily use our skills in this area and apply them to producing slip cases. These slip cases are not only a method of protecting the book inside, but they can give an added value aspect along with enhancing the users experience of opening a gift or uncovering something coveted or envied.
A bespoke book has a special place in our hearts and is certainly something to be treasured and looked after. When a simple object can give a significant and emotive connection to the user, it is even more important to go the extra mile when at the production stage by selecting the perfect processes, coupled with an exact material choice and detailed finishing touches. We absolutely love being part of that process and being able to apply all our experience and passion into the production. So, allow us to help you in making something beautiful, treasured and long lasting.
